We use IDEA terminals HTE 4.06-05.  Serial and parallel port with support
for bar code or light pens.  Types the data to your application as if it
came from the keyboard.  Just make sure the cursor is in the right spot.

Subject: attaching a bar code reader to a 319x terminal


Could someone please share their experiences on attaching
a bar code reader (Laser preferred), to a 319x terminal?

I see some even have RF (radio frequency) ability.

In order to cut down on keying errors, we will require
certain vendors to bar code some data on their packing
list to us.

We currently have a complete PC based data collection
system that could do this, but it appears that the prices
of the equipment that can attach to a dumb terminal is
such that it may be easier (I'm sorry "cost effective") to
 just "tweak" the interactive application to read the bar 
code, instead of writing a interface to the PC based data
collection system. Also, if I do it interactively, I can 
perform edits that cannot be done through the PC 
based system.
